Key Factors for Remotely Managing Your Business:
Have regular meetings:
Not everyone needs to be huddled in the conference room to have a good meeting; You can get remote employees, freelancers and office workers, all in the same meeting with just an internet connection.
Now meetings every day, or even weekly, can be difficult while traveling because you are mostly busy and have other things to do. However, meeting with the managers on a weekly or bi-weekly basis will reassure your presence in the office and confirm your oversight on all business matters.
You can easily have meetings via Skype or Google Hangouts where anyone can see and even share files as needed. You can also use Google Slides for presentation or Team Viewer to share your computer screen with everyone for a demo.
Remember to interact with your employees on a regular basis, no matter where you are, and to build close relationships with them that can be trusted. If this is done, you will never worry about the business when you leave.
Track work progress and hours:
Being out of the office should never mean that the work is not done or paused. Technology has created a solution for laid-back or lazy employees, time tracking software. This type of software allows you to keep track of employees' work hours, so you will always stay up-to-date or work part-time.
Employees will be able to keep track of their shifts, breaks and leave notes on the progress of their work.
There are many types of time tracking software, some essentially focused on time tracking such as ClockIn Portal, which generate tables and can be integrated with payroll systems.
Others include project management features like Zoho Projects, where you can share projects, assign tasks, and track tasks.
You can also use basic project management software like Basecamp or Asana, which focuses primarily on working efficiently. Project management software allows you to assign tasks, update them with comments, set deadlines, add attachments, and ultimately mark them as completed. Through a direct method of keeping track of work hours and work progress, employees will feel obliged to concentrate and make things faster.
Work with business mail immediately:
While traveling, your mail is something you should not forget. Ignoring your mail for even a few days can cause problems. Unapproved mail can be an important contract from clients, documents from partners or investors, or feedback from your clients.
With a virtual mailbox, you can take your mail with you wherever you go.
A virtual mailbox is a mailbox that you can access online and process your mail. Options range from fragmenting each document or redirecting packages to opening, archiving, or downloading mail in just a few minutes. Your mail is delivered to secure mail facilities, where the envelope is scanned and uploaded to your cloud mailbox so you can control it.
So not only is remote access to your important mail, it also eliminates the need for a post office! This means less paper storage, no mail operators, and faster mail operations that will win you and your pocket.
Now you are ready to get started!
By checking your basic business needs, you can easily travel when needed, without having to worry about work being left behind or managing your business inefficiently. By following these three factors, you can manage your tasks and still have time to enjoy your vacation!
